Treason in Defense of Slavery

We've been really remiss in not sending you over to Alterdestiny to catch Erik Loomis' series on the "mind" of the Confederacy and its dedication to slavery despite claims to the contrary since. Not any single post to promote. Go over, scroll down, and read them all. Really good stuff on the US equivalent of Japan's failure to accept the enormity of its role in WWII. Until we give up the myths we've refused to confront since the Civil War, we'll always have this horrible fault line running through our society and politics. Erik won't do it by himself, but this is a really nice start. Good job.
